My mother is the greatest gift of God for me. She guided me since I was a little boy until I became an engineer. But things did not goes better during those days. My father and his brothers and sisters oppressed us. He did not stand by his responsibility as a father and a husband to us. He is not giving any money to my mother but he gave willingly to his brothers sisters and nephews and niece. My mother is the only person on my side. When my father doesn't give enough money anymore for my tuition my mother work and have a parlor to sustain my studies. I finally graduated. And when I first work, I gave her all my salary as my gratitude for her. I know she was so pleased. But I didn't become successful in life. She grow older and she had a heart enlargement. I sustain her medicine and even hospitalization. Three times I brought her to the hospital. The last is her death last May 30. She died at the age of 81. Before she died I did what I know is best. I invited a pastor elder of our church to anoint her with oil. She confirmed also her acceptance for Christ. That is the best I know more than any material things I can do for her. Now that she is gone I missed her a lot and I cannot help myself crying when I am alone.
